Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + 3*n + 9 (with a(0)=0). - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 26 2010

G.f.: 3*x*(4 - 3*x)/(1 - x)^3. - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Dec 24 2011

From G. C. Greubel, May 26 2017: (Start)

a(n) = 3*n*(n+7)/2.

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3).

E.g.f.: (3/2)*(8*x + x^2)*exp(x). (End)
